Unique Features

12 foot aluminum rowboat and kayaks are included so plan on getting on the water and exploring the shoreline and canal to Tupper Lake, a smaller fishing lake – use our snorkels, masks, a pair of flippers and swim right by the dock. Any chill will be ousted with a soak in the Lakeside hot tub. Our huge party deck with lots of seating leads from the house to the water & dock (the entire backyard is a deck); grill out and watch members of your group kayaking. This is also where you gather around the bonfire for s’mores. This is the only deck on the lake that extends over the water.

We kept some of the original original rustic pine paneling, on select walls and ceilings. And we added modern twists: AC, gas river stone fireplace, WIFI, Keurig machine, stainless steel gas range, 4 person outdoor hot tub by the lake.

Located in the heart of Lake Odessa village! Antique stores, restaurants, beer & wine stores. In fact, the best restaurant in town is right next door, and has great bowling as well. Other restaurants are also within walking distance, and downtown is just 3 city blocks away, maybe a 5 minute walk.

Things To Do

There are the activities in the Beach Cottage and involving the lake. There is the residential neighborhood and lakefront offering walking, biking, or drives. Or you can check out the lakefront from another viewpoint-from the lake. Use the rowboat or kayaks (lifejackets included) to cruise the area. Swimming, boating, and fishing can be done from the Beach Cottage, or from the public Beach and docks, just 150 feet away (3 doors down). Hot tub, watch movies, play games, have a campfire, BBQ, and more all available without leaving the Cottage.
If you want to go just a mile or 2 out, you will find so much more! Lake Odessa is home to the Picklebowl. The (open to the public) arena is just up the street (Pickleball and paddles at the Cottage for you to use). The high school serves as trailhead for the (still under construction) Jordan Lake Trail, and also offers great tennis courts, baseball, soccer, and more.
Go for a hike in the Ionia State Recreation Area just 10 miles away, or ride your bike for miles on the trails that connect hundreds of miles of trails between other cities.

Things to remember: All parking is free and steps away. Summer: on street parking. Winter: public lot next door (your host will help you out here). Quiet hours 10pm-7am.

We went for just one night away from the world, this was a wonderful place to do that! The restaurant was not even 50 yards away but it was great food. And honestly couldn't tell it was that close. There was a beautiful view from inside the cottage to the lake. The color choice was interesting for this cottage but made it easy to find. Cottage was kept clean and is just very cute on the inside.

Photos were accurate - nice big open living space, great views of the lake. Robert P
The cottage was beautiful inside. From the different variety of lures that are embedded into the coat rack to the old fashion fireplace. This place was home away from home for us. Jason was super responsive with every question I had. If we had trash he was there 10 minutes later picking it up for us to be thrown away. He made the stay more enjoyable for us with doing everything and anything he could. If I could give him a higher rating I would because he deserves it. The neighbors there are super friendly and will also answer any questions you have. We will be coming back next year. Brandon D
We had a wonderful time at the Lake Odessa Beach Cottage! It was so relaxing - we really enjoyed the deck, the full lake views, the fire pit, the true "cabin" feel of the interior also added to the ambiance feeling of being "up north" but convenient to everything. The cabin was very clean, with tons of amenities and stocked with anything we needed. Jason was a dream to work with and everything went very smoothly. sheila t

About the Owner/Manager

We (your hosts, Jason and Carmen) live just down the street. If you need anything, just give us a call. We invite you to experience our super service and top to bottom clean Beach Cottage.
I had always loved that week in Lake Odessa as a child. That time during the summer that we would look forward to for months. We would plan for weeks, and pack for days. It was less than a half an hour drive to Lake O, but it felt like another world to me there. Time slowed down, and everyone seemed to be all about summer fun. My special request every year was to be there when the fair was in town. We could ride our bikes from The Cottage to the fairgrounds, and stop by the gas station on the way for candy and soda.
A trip to the ice cream shop, a quick stop downtown at the dime store, and swimming in the lake were all fun, but the fishing... the fishing was the best part! It seemed like you could use live bait or lures, go to most any part of the lake, and always have a new experience.
And then the evening campfire with stories about the day, plans for the next, and flaming marshmallows on sticks. The smell of bug spray and suntan lotion, and then the kids up to the loft and the parents downstairs to sleep with the windows open and the sound of the crickets, while seeing flashing lightning bugs out the window as you drifted off to sleep.
And Lake Odessa today is pretty much the same experience. Only what I didn't know as a child, is that spring, winter, and fall offer awesome fun as well! Whether it be pickle ball, bicycling, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, walking, or skiing, there are numerous options for enjoying the outdoors year round. And when venturing out is just not your thing, taking a dip in the lakeside hot tub, or stepping next door for a dinner and perhaps bowling offer entertainment without venturing too far.
